I still haven't bought into the "Beth Was An Escort" theory, but you folks do make it entertaining. I was listening to the 1/4/12 show -- Rachel Butera is the best thing they've had on in months -- and heard the following, submitted for your approval. Talking about the Hoff's new "alien themed whorehouse" idea. (Useless Robin interruptions sanitized for your protection.) Honestly he seemed quite sincere and I didn't sense any irony, self-awareness, or cognitive dissonance; then again I rarely do with him. (I certainly remember the Artie discussions he's referring to.) But I thought some people here might find it interesting. I think the other usual components of the Escort Theory are (a) Beth Ostrosky Stern's lack of documented European work (but she could have been doing ANYTHING there, from getting married to slumming around to working as a fluffer) and (b) Alec Baldwin's reference to her as an escort in a Howard interview... Please feel free to lay out additional evidence here... or ignore it... whatever.
